Having trouble designing portfolio drop down pages (6 posts)

    Hello there. I have been trouble shooting this for hours and hours! I am trying to create an initial portfolio page (recipes) that has sub pages (breakfast, smoothies, snacks, etc) Every time I set this up, I link the posts to the appropriate pages, but they link to EVEry page in the recipe (portfolio) section instead. I am starting to get very frustrated, as I cannot seem to figure this out. If you think you can help me, I would greatly appreciate it. Do I need to use sticky notes for this? (Oh, and why does my sight look so much narrower than other that are using the pinboard theme?
    Thank you sooo much for your help!

    Have you tried creating categories (breakfast category, smoothies category, etc.) and using the categories as pages?

    If not, there are great plugins out there that do url redirects. I have used this one before:
    http://wordpress.org/plugins/page-links-to/

    As for the size. You can adjust the following line
    style.css line 588
    #wrapper {
    background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #F8F8F8;
    box-shadow: 0 0 18px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.4);
    margin: 0 auto;
    max-width: 1140px;
    overflow: hidden;
    position: relative;
    }
    If you do this, definitely install a child theme.

    I hope that helps. I'm not 100% sure how everything is setup in your site, but that's what I would do.

    Hi Josiah, Thank you so much for getting back to me on my issues. I have the sub-pages created as categories, but they are still pulling in the mail recipes posts, instead of their own. Not sure what to do about this. I will look into installing a child theme...have not learned about that yet, but can understand why I would need one if I were to tinker with the CSS.
    If you have any other suggestions, I would be open to hearing any of them. Thank you!

    try using the plugin i recommended. it appears at the bottom of your page that you are editing with an option for a custom url. Check out your url for category you want to link to, copy and paste that category url in the custom url box. That should work for you. I just tried it on a demo site and got the category going.

    And yes, child themes are awesome. I can remember when they were not used and it was a nightmare any time you updated anything.

    Let me know if that works for you.

    Thank you Josiah, I'm afraid that some of these little details in constructing this site have taking me forever to figure out...hours and hours! Have you heard of wordpress.org admins, or designers that would work with me individually to help me get over some of these tricky areas?
    Thanks for your advice on the custom url!
